6 cups cooked or pork or chicken
1 recipe green onion cilantro sauce

about 36 dried corn husks, prepared for tamales

Preparation

Green Onion Cilantro Sauce
Yield: 4 cups

10 bunches fresh cilantro
1 bunch green onions
1 cup roasted almonds
3 ounces grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup olive oil
about 3/4 cup chicken or vegetable stock


In a food processor, combine all ingredients except stock and puree. Add enough stock to give your sauce the consistency of a thin gravy.


MASA HARINA

Yield: 15 cups- 2 doz tamales

7 cups chicken, meat or vegetable stock
2 cups lard, butter, margarine, shortening, olive or corn oil, or any combination of these
1 -2 tablespoons salt
12 cups dry masa harina flour

Heat the stock until it is warm.
In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, mix the flour with stock. Beat on medium speed for a minute or two until well combined. If your dough seems dry, don't be afraid to add additional stock. At this point your dough should resemble a thick pudding.
If you're using oil, drizzle in oil while mixing and Beat the masa for about 10 minutes or until light and fluffy.
If you are using butter, margarine, lard or shortening as your fat, remove the masa mixture from bowl and set aside. Beat the solid fats on high speed for 2-3 minutes or until light and fluffy. Add the masa mixture to the whipped fat a cup at a time until it is all incorporated. Continue to Beat for about 5-8 minutes or until the dough is a soft paste consistency.
